Time once more for some interesting facts, this time about phobias. A phobia is an unreasonable fear or terror about some thing, situation, or what have you. It's similar to anxiety, except with a phobia, the cause of fear is known, whereas with anxiety the cause is not.

So anyways, for your enjoyment, I've decided to post some phobias, and of two different kinds. First, I'll be posting some officially recognized phobias, then some phobias that people have claimed to have, but are not officially recognized. Keep in mind, that this is talking about absolute, immobilizing terror. Think you've got a phobia? Go ahead and post it!

Official phobias:
Ablutophobia- Fear of washing or bathing.
Acarophobia- Fear of itching or of the insects that cause itching.
Acerophobia- Fear of sourness.
Achluophobia- Fear of darkness.
Acousticophobia- Fear of noise.
Acrophobia- Fear of heights.
Aerophobia- Fear of drafts, air swallowing, or airbourne noxious substances.
Aeroacrophobia- Fear of open high places.
Aeronausiphobia- Fear of vomiting secondary to airsickness.
Agateophobia- Fear of insanity.

Unofficial phobias:
Fear of the number 666
Fear of Adam's apples
Fear of balloons
Fear of band-aids
Fear of basketballs
